There are no discussions about Mercedes' commitment to Formula One in the German marque's boardroom.
That is the claim of motor sport director Norbert Haug, who said that despite struggling with the W02 car, Mercedes remains happy with its place on the grid.
"No, there are not (any discussions)," the German told Kleine Zeitung newspaper.
"That is not to say that Mercedes must be forever committed to Formula One; there's no guarantee of a rubber-stamp for all time.
"But for now the enthusiasm is tremendous," added Haug.
